VR Games are taking the gaming community by storm, and new titles with cute intractable characters and visually appealing in-game worlds are launching every other day.
To keep up with this popular trend, the anime community is also investing in some epic VR games. One such example is the newly crafted Spice and Wolf VR 2 game.
Based on Isuna Hasekura’s light novel, Spice and Wolf tells the story of Kraft Lawrence, a traveling merchant who ends up crossing paths with a 600-year-old wolf deity named Holo, and together they travel to Yoitsu, encountering various obstacles and developing a stronger bond along the way.
Spice and Wolf made its anime debut with Season 1 in 2008 and Season 2 in 2009. A VR (Virtual Reality) game named “Spice and Wolf VR” was made in 2019 by Spicy Tails game developers.
Now, Spice and Wolf is back with a new VR game named Spice and Wolf VR 2. This new game made by Spicy Tails and Gemdrops game studios will be available for Nintendo Switch from December 10th, 2020.
The PC version will be available via Steam whose release date is yet to be announced.
The PV reveals the gaming experience where you, the player, will take on Lawrence’s role and spend your days with your wife Holo and daughter Myuri in the European inspired fictional bathhouse in the town of Nyohhira.
The game’s visual poster also reveals the characters present in the game and gives the first look of Lawrence and Holo’s daughter Myuri, a silver tailed half-human, half-wolf girl.
The game will support the languages Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), and English and act as a sequel to the virtual reality anime.
Spice and Wolf VR 2 will be available on platforms like PlayStation VR, PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, Oculus Rift, and Oculus Go. Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets are not compatible with the game yet.
The voice cast for the characters are:
|Lawrence||Jun Fukuyama||Koro-sensei (Assassination Classroom)|
|Holo||Ami Koshimizu||Aika (AIKa Zero)|
|Myuri||Aimi Tanaka||Miwa (Absolute Duo)|
We can’t wait for the game to release so that we can get to experience the virtual world and gloat on Myuri’s antics.
